Broad, lush and absolutely flat, the great Mekong River Delta forms the southernmost part of the country, extending to Mui Ca Mau – Vietnam’s Cap Finistere, where the waters of the South China Sea meet those of the Gulf of Thai land. The vast delta region is made up of rich alluvial silt carried down by the floodwaters of the Mekong from Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand.

So regular is this process that the delta is growing at a rate of about 75m (245ft) per year, extending both the shoreline and the rich farmland known as ‘Vietnam’s Rice Bowl’. A visit to this region enables the traveler to explore shaded waterways and floating markets by boat, see relics of the ancient Funanese city of Oc Eo, and visit the delta’s Khmer Buddhist temples and Cham Muslim mosques.
